Ion D. Sirbu and the Theatre

The paper Ion D. Sirbu and the Theatre analyzes several aspects of the writer’s activity as a literary secretary and as a dramatic reviewer at The National Theatre from Craiova. An aspiring playwright himself, Ion D. Sirbu was inspired, most probably, by Lucian Blaga’s dramaturgy and the spirit of dramatic emulation and histrionic urges evinced by the members of the Literary Circle from Sibiu. For instance, all the meetings organized in Henri Jaquier’s residence were inflamed with fervent discussions about theatre, considered by Ion Negoitescu the most important literary genre because of its educative side. As a consequence, the literary movement from Sibiu encouraged the young authors to produce and direct plays with a classical structure, competitive abroad. The members gather round Professor Liviu Rusu and form a debate group named “The Friends of The Aesthetics Seminary” where various aspects of dramatic art are taken into consideration. The interest in dramaturgy distinguishes Ion D. Sirbu out of his literary comrades and propels him as a lecturer at The Institute of Dramatic Art from Cluj and afterwards, as a literary secretary in Craiova. His skill as a playwright received literary acknowledgement once Sirbu got important distinctions such as The Academy Award and The Union of Romanian Writers Prize. Yet, although his plays were staged by all the theatres in the country, no significant critic considered them mentionable. In the present paper we evaluated Sirbu’s conception on dramatic art, aside from the implicit poetics contained by his plays. We focused rather on the texts of theoretic carriage from which we picked the most notable quotations. Our conclusion is that Ion D. Sirbu upholds ethical and educative values of theatre and also the priority of text as against dramatic representation.
